Beautiful Sound - Great to Work With
The sound the quartet produced was amazing; so rich and pure perfectly providing elegance to the prelude, ceremony and cocktail hour. We received many, many compliments from our guests about the beautiful music.
I have another daughter and will not hesitate to have String Quartet of Northern Virginia play at her wedding. I highly recommend them.
A great addition to the day!

I have officiated over 2,500 weddings in this region, and always have a smile when I see the String Quartet of Northern Virginia at a wedding. They are just as good as you can get. They plan a beautiful selection of music (you can occasionally get good musicians who play mediocre music for your guest ... but NOT this quartet!), played by accomplished musicians who will keep your guests feeling great and smiling themselves the whole time.
I have had the privilege of working with and attending performances of Stephanie Flack and/or the String Quartet of Northern Virginia on several occasions. What can I say? Their music is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Be ready to be absolutely swept away! In addition, Stephanie is wonderful to work with. She is responsive, attentive, professional, and notices the little details. I highly recommend Stephanie and the String Quartet of Northern Virginia for any wedding or event, and if I were getting married tomorrow, they would be my string quartet!
We worked with the String Quartet of Northern Virginia on a wedding at the Wardman Park Marriott over Labor Day weekend. I can't say enough great things about Stephanie and her team! They arrived on time, their music is beyond perfect, and were great at taking and giving cues to make the ceremony and cocktail hour a huge success! I can't wait for us to work together again on another wedding!
